Laying off employees is a tough economic decision that organisations are often required to make in the competitive marketplace today. It is an emotional experience for both employees and employers. The way this delicate situation is handled can have a significant impact on a company's reputation, standing in the market, and future performance.
As a caring organisation, you no doubt want to help your outgoing employees in every way possible to ease the transition. How do you do this in the most compassionate, sympathetic, and prudent manner? CLink-HR Consulting offers thoughtful outplacement services for organisations who want to support employees who have been affected by changes in the business strategy and structure.
Redundancy is a highly volatile experience that affects the entire organisation. The deployment of a carefully structured outplacement programme by experienced professionals will give your organisation the ability to safeguard your reputation as an employer of choice, and to reduce potential liabilities.
CLink-HR Consulting will function as your outplacement agency which offers employees a smooth transition from your company, while at the same time giving you the confidence that you're communicating a clear message about how you treat employees with the respect and dignity that they deserve even at difficult times. We will work together with you to implement all your transition initiatives according to your organisational values, while minimising the risks associated with this significant change.
An outplacement consultant offers departing employees with a professional support that they need and deserve in finding new suitable positions. When one door closes, another one opens. Your employees have served you well through the years, and they need as much help as they need to take in the possibly sudden and unforeseen redundancy, and successfully transition to a new job.
CLink’s approach to outplacement services addresses the needs of both organisations as well as employees. Our services are customised to the particular needs of individuals, and offer the following benefits:
Our services are tailored to offer crucial support at the time of vulnerability, and to help employees come up with a well thought out plan for the next step in their career. By holding the networking and interviewing skills, we maximise the chances of success of each outgoing employee. If the employee is unable to find a suitable job of his or her satisfaction, we also help them be deputed on short or long-term projects till they find a permanent job.
Not only that, our outplacement services will help strengthen your organisation’s image as a caring, responsible, and compassionate employer. We help protect your brand against negative publicity and poor perception by the remaining employees.
In today's economy, layoffs are unavoidable. But they still remain as complicated and emotional as they always were. As an employer, it is important to carefully plan out a strategy and execute it flawlessly to avoid erosion of the business as well as maintain your positive reputation in the community.
We can help you create a customised outplacement strategy that is right for your organisation. Get in touch with us if you would like to schedule a conversation with our team.
